to create a civil environment for him to do so. sheriff jones said they're engaged with him around the clock and most communications in the day. this standoff dragged on for about 140 hours now and started last week, last tuesday when he allegedly boarded the stopped school bus and demanded two kids police say. and when the bus driver, charles poland, objected, he allegedly shot the bus driver and then made off with 5-year-old ethan who has a mild form of autism and in this underground bunker since last tuesday. about 40 hours and the mood here has somewhat changed and seemed to be tense at beginning. now it seems to be a slow method call approach that police are taking trying to create a civil environment for him to talk to negotiators. now, today we're also hearing that neighbors are collecting cards for 5-year-old ethan. his birthday is this week. and many of them are praying for his safe release at this moment. tamron? >> thank you. let's bring in former fbi profiler and nbc analyst clint van zant. gabe said they're trying to create a civil environment. when's the strategy there? >> one

these breakthroughs in how we produced or consume our energy, you do get to a lower carbon environment. i think that that is a good thing. we should be moving that way and are moving that way. some of it has been command and control. cafe clearly was. but think about what else has happened. you have seen a shift to more renewables. you have seen a shift towards natural gas. in my state you have seen a shift in the technology that allows us to go after our fossil fuels in a manner that again is in less intensity than the other most likely alternative. so, we are reducing our emissions and that is the way that we should be going. but, again, to take an approach that has been tried and failed, cap and trade, or a carbon tax that is designed by its nature to increase prices at a time when our economy does not need to see increased energy prices, that will not get us to a lower carbon economy. i think my vision takes us there and it is not by accident. i think it is because our desire to be in a world that has more affordable abundant clean bill of verse and secure energy has taken that step -- clea

was operating in a legal environment that amounted to a veritable catch-22. john brennan faces his confirmation hearing to be the head of the cia on thursday this week. he will face questions from senators on the senate intelligence committee who will presumably ask him about his time in the cia of yore under george w. bush and his time as the face of the drone program under president barack obama. one of the senators who sits on the intelligence committee is going to get a chance to question john brennan is oregon democrat ron wyden, who is a bit of a contrarian on the issues. he recently wrote a letter to john brennan asking for answers of his own about targeted killing and why it's justified and how it's justified. the questions themselves are so basic that they are almost more telling than some of the answers they could but probably won't receive. questions like, for example, how much evidence does the president need to determine that a particular american can be lawfully killed? also, this is one that sticks with me, does the president have to provide individual americans with the opportun
close loopholes on carried interest. loopholes that should be closed in any budget environment. we close those and then we arrive at a place where we have balance between the cuts that we've already seen, $1.7 trillion, and revenue increases, and then through changes in -- through reductions and efficiencies in the pentagon budget, we put $300 billion into jobs, which saves teachers, which invests in school frukt, a and helps schools. >> congressman, mr. ryan and mr. mcconnell at the beginning of this year said quite clearly the revenues issue is now closed. it's off the table. there are no more discussions on revenues. >> so they would rather cut home heating oil for seniors -- >> yes. >> they'd rather cut women and infants and children. >> yes. >> food grams. >> yes. >> they'd rather cut things like that than ask rich people for more money? >> what about meals on wheels, head start. that's what they'd like to cut, this is correct. >> so it's brutal. it's cruel. and it will cause layoffs and we will see economic growth decline, and they're willing to do this just to protect the wealthie
, how we can do the things necessary to create an environment for small businesses to flourish. and commit to that agenda. then, if the people are kind enough to give us a majority, inactive. we have to be four things rather than against. it does not help to be against obama. >> does it cause you grief? i was listening to the afl-cio folks earlier today. there are a lot of components of immigration reform that you are on completely the same page together. i think that gives ted crews heartburn. but you are fine with that, it seems. >> we have a tough negotiations ahead of us. one of the toughest parts that we have not resolved is this whole issue of the guest workers. high-tech workers, no problem. somebody has a ph.d. from mit, he want to stay, god bless you. but when we get into agricultural jobs and low- skilled workers, the devil is in the details. under what conditions can we have a low-skilled worker who is not a resident citizen in this country, and work? that is a really tough issue between us and the unions. we have good negotiators. we are result oriented. i am guarde
. my accident happened in what should have been the safest of environments yet it just goes to show you can't prevent every gun-related issue and more guns around people isn't necessarily the answer, the nra would suggest. i believe we should focus on those things that are most important, universal background checks, the assault weapons ban and also, elimination of these high capacity gun magazines. this is going to be our focus and i hope we can get something done on this. >> congressman, are you worried that in the ranks democratically that there might be issues because the "wall street journal" talks about the senate side of this and the senate bill, saying the strategy outlined also reflects a growing sense within democratic ranks that some of the president's most ambitious goals, particularly the call for new bans on certain types of military style guns, often described as assault weapons, may be unrealistic. this is according to a reid aide. again, i get back to harry reid really being the key point person to be able to take through feinstein's newly introduced bill and any other
, we actually get to a better climate, a better environment. just a place where we are stronger as a nation, and where we're cleaner environmentally as a nation. >> you are talking about drilling. when the president and certainly the incoming secretary of state who has been a leader on climate change is talking about doing something about greenhouse gases, haven't the storms, superstorm sandy, irene last year, haven't all of these recent storms and the fluctuations in temperature taught us if nothing else, that we have a real climate problem and that we have to deal with this here even if the rest of the world isn't going to deal with it in china and elsewhere? >> when you say i'm talking about drilling, think about what we're drilling for right now. think about where the boom is in this country. it's with natural gas. in order to access that natural gas, you do have to drill. what it has yaelded this country is an abundance of a resource that they read. it's able to bring our cost down and able to bring about jobs and economic opportunity that we wouldn't have had. how do we pa
anything else, the speed of the bullets terrified me. thinking about those in a closed environment like a school or a theater, as they've been used in recent atrocities. i want to play a couple of clips from tony bennett and chris rock at the same event you were at today who lent their support to this campaign. >> i still haven't gotten over connecticut. i'd like the assault -- assault weapons to go to war not in our own country. and i'd like assault weapons eliminated. thank you. >> the president and the first lady are kind of like the mom and the dad of the country. and when your dad says something, you listen. and when you don't, it usually bites you in the ass later on. >> very serious and powerful from tony bennett. jock lar but making a good point from chris rock there, i felt. i mean, the truth is that the majority of americans support the ban on assault weapons. the latest cnn poll was 56% i think. the majority support universal background checks. the majority want these high-capacity clips to be banned. there is a will there. but is there a will amongst the politicians, kerry k

[applause] >> that is a great message from a republican from georgia about a relationship he has with a democrat and virginia. i know that the congressman sent his best. he plans to be here but he has a 103 degree fever. we need him back in congress and in the working group to make sure we are solving those problems. for the next little bit of time, we are going to get t

's a problem. >> economists always talk about. what is going on here than the see this environment changing in a fundamental way? >> what is confused as there are two issues. do you want a particular subsidy spending like aiden the you have got and do you wanted in the tax cut? actually, do you want the tax code in the budget cents and you want the irs to administer it? the first issue is whether you want the provision which seems to me as the same issue you have a threat spending treks spending. my action is the one item i do say. low income levels have given what is going on an income and to -- distribution. i don't like the budget accounting because it feels like it is a tax cut when it is equivalent to direct it expenditure, so it makes it easier to enact and we should recognize the same effects as the direct span the chair. most of the subsidies. i think the irs probably gets it administered as best they can. it largely relates to this budget accounting concept that it looks like a negative tax and therefore is not the same thing as larger -- it appears to be smaller government when is
for what they believe. >> it's how you teach an old dog new tricks. >> most of us are in our environment how we were raised, and we learn from them. i have said there's five promises every adult should make. the first is a child should have a loving and caring adults in their life and the second is they should have a healthy start to read the child should have an education. the child should have a safe place. the second one is a promise you cannot teach. they should grow to be loving and caring adult and give something back. the usually emulate that who they were raised by and have their fellow suit. in the political process it is hard for anyone of you looking today to try to find a hero that says i'm willing to make a vote. hopefully we will give political leaders and policy makers the courage to say i am willing to sit down and talk. i'm not worried about guilt by conversation. even though i might disagree or think that you are not right for the left field i want to hear what you are coming from. maybe we can find some commonality. i am going to make a tough vote and if someone says y
and based on fact. obviously, when it comes to the environment, i think we have like-minded objectives. mr. harper and mr. obama have both set a 7% reduction in emissions. we have worked together on reducing emissions in cars and trucks. canada is aggressively moving forward on our plan to ban and phase out dirty coal-fired electricity, and i think we all share the need for a growing economy to create jobs. we share the desire on energy security in north america, and we also share the objective of protecting our environment for future generations, and those will be areas where we will continue to work together.

of people who turned out not to be dorner. >> he talking about their target-rich environment. what was he suggesting here do you think? >> in the los angeles police department when there's any type of an incident they set up a post and they bring everybody there. so you have a collection of cops all drawn to one area of any scene so when you look at the incidents he's generating that he can circle back wait a while, and attack the command post or there will be the grammys on sunday where you're going have a major police command post or police presence to a guy who's saying i'm looking for the target-rich environmental. and you know he thought all this through. >> is there a concern? >> i've spoken to the people there, and their problems are very interesting. one problem is can they get enough cops to police the grammys and everybody's been deployed on this. people are being called in on days off, overtime and so on. but they believe that he has shifted from being the hunter to the hunted now as he's had to abandon that vehicle and move quick. >> john miller. than

in syria is it makes the operational environment much easier for al-qaeda and its allies. they can operate in cairo. they can have public demonstrations in cairo with mubarak gone and it doesn't hurt them. they don't get arrested or chased out of the country. so the changing middle east has played to the strengths of al-qaeda and certainly in terms of the pressure on them, except for pakistan, the pressure is off. >> brian: when you mentioned on the radio show to me that you're worried about your grandchildren and the world in which we are right now, we're cutting back and almost saying the enemy doesn't exist. >> well, it's not almost, brian. people like john brennan and the president, who have gone out of their way to say that jihad is like a rotary club for the world. they're just self-improving muslims. they've gone out of the way to make americans believe the danger and the threat in the world is reduced. and the combination of that lie with the cuts in the defense budget are certainly not good news for american security. >> brian: john brennan, we just saw video of him. he's poised t
